Community College: THE BLACK BOX ISSUES
Risking translations of what is only partly understood
September 20–28, 2019, Kunsthalle Wien

The Community College is Kunsthalle Wien’s open space for reflection and action. Since the open call (“Could there be an affectionate feminist algorithm?”) in spring, 2019, the group pursues such questions and activates the discursive space of the exhibition Hysterical Mining with a reading session, open gatherings and workshops that invite people to work together on diverse ‘translations’ of the inner processes of black boxes. In the sense of “staying with the trouble” (Donna Haraway), we do not shy away from creating productive confusion and suggesting cheerful exercises for a life in complexity. The goal is to initiate a discourse on the impact of black boxes and the need for democratic regulation.
